TREY SONGZ SPEAKS
If you didnt read all about the dusty up with Trey Songz in Philly, click here. I have all the rumor and conjecture. But Trey hit me with a statement and here it is:
I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to my fans and to those individuals that attended the show at St. Joseph's University last week. Due to technical difficulties with the sound system, I was unable to complete my performance. Contrary to reports that I attacked or went after a heckler are totally untrue. My road manager and I did have a public disagreement over the situation with the sound system which was unprofessional. I'm extremely passionate about my music and it's important to me that my fans get the best performance possible.
All my love to the students and staff of St. Joseph's University
WHERE IS YOUNG BUCK? (PART 302)
Here are some rumors going around. I heard that Suge Knight has possibly inquired about managing him or something. I heard the two are familiar, because Juvenile used to deal with him and Buck used to deal with Juve.
I havent really been verifying this info, I am hearing that Yayo and Buck have done well financially because they toured with 50 on his last outing. Buck did not. I heard they all did VERY WELL. I heard other cats went too, like Mazardi Fox and Hot Rod, but not Buck since some of the friction had already started.
One thing is good, it doesnt look like this will spin into anything like The Game. I heard as long as Buck doesnt do a song with The Game or actually dis 50 Cent, well all be OK. Furthermore, I heard it is most likely that Young Buck and 50 will actually work things out.
LISA RAYES HUBBY ACCUSED OF RAPE!
Michael Misick is Lisa Rayes husband and he is now being accused of rape. Misick, the Premier of the British dependent territory, the Turks & Caicos, is being investigated for a sexual assault an American woman by local police. According to published reports, something happened last weekend, but Misick is emphatically denying the charges. Some are stating that the person could be a friend of Lisa Raye. He said he wont step down as Premier. I cant even lie, I dont know exactly what a Premier is, but I will google it and find out.
IRRELEVANT ROCKER TRIES TO DIS JIGGA?
When was the last time Oasis was relevant? Maybe in the UK and even that is a maybe! Group member Noel dissed Jay-Z telling the BBC, If it ain't broke don't fix it. If you start to break it then people aren't going to go. I'm sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go 'Kylie Minogue?' I don't know about it. But I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong." No, youre wrong. Jay-Z is coming through, son!
NO RESPECT RAPPER DISSES YO YO!
Hedonis da Amazon, the Philly rapper is an AHH Breeding Ground alumni and everything, but sheeeeeesh! Did she really have to diss Yo Yo? I dont watch that female rapper show thing as is the case with most reality rap shows. I heard Hedonis was given the boot and Yo Yo said some things about how she felt about Hedonis. But, isnt that how the shows go? They eliminate people and keep people. The point, Hedonis has recorded a Yo Yo diss in true 2008 Hip-Hop form. (Shout out to Kandi Cole)
Also, if you want to read Yo Yos interview, click here. Shes still a dope chick and an ambassador of female rapdom!
LL COOL J SAYS SORRY
Jason Henry of The Henry Project and Derek hit me up and told me about the LL show in Orlando recently. The rapper admitted to the adoring crowd that his last couples of albums werent his best work. He said that his next joint is coming out on July 8 and it would be way better. I heard LL is still using DJ Cut Creator and they had a great dedication to Run DMC and Jam Master Jay.
Speaking of Run DMC, my boys told me that DMC was out in LA over the weekend and he is working on some big things with some big people. I wont say anymore, because I cant let the cat out of the bag.
Back to LL. I heard he killed it and rocked his joints like "Bad," "Mama Said Knock You Out," and even did a verse from "Dear Evette." I even heard that LL gave AllHipHop a shoutout! YAY! Now, thats the business. On the real side of things, next to Hip-Hip in the dictionary, there should be a picture of LL Cool J. Not too many others get that honor.

Mariah Carey on missing Ol Dirty Bastard:
I love him and I miss him. Working with him was a highlight for me because it was such a random union. But for younger kids on the street, thats the version of Fantasy they know the line Me and Mariah.
Solange on Beyonces parenting skills (Singersroom News):
She's kept my son over the weekend. She'll call me like, 'How do you get this stroller out? And what about the car seat? I don't know how you do this!' And I'm like, 'People do it every day.' "

Trouble in Paradise: The Wendy Williams Edition
According to the NY Daily News, Wendy Williams may be in even more trouble than she thought. It seems more women are coming forward with more complaints about Wendy's husband and his sexually offensive behavior toward them in the workplace! Peep this:
More WBLS staffers have come forward to corroborate the sexual harassment claims made by a young female talent booker for the shock jock.
Nicole Spence, who wrangled such guests as Janet Jackson, Russell Simmons and Flo Rida for Williams show, filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint last month against WBLS, Williams and her husband and manager, Kevin Hunter.
While Hunter doesnt work for the radio station, he was often in the studio. Despite the presence of his wife, Hunter repeatedly sexually propositioned me, Spence claims in the filing, telling me over and over that he wanted to f- me
Others have come forward since we filed the complaint to support Nicoles claims, said Karen Webber, a partner in the prestigious law firm Thompson, Wigdor & Gilly, which is preparing a federal lawsuit on Spences behalf. They say he often called women bitches and used alcohol, and they describe his violent outbursts against Ms. Williams. Other women say they were victimized as well.
Can someone really take down the Queen... Damn say it aint so! I got your back tho girl ;-) Guess what goes around come around... Meaning me and illseed better watch our backs LOL! No need security out front handles it all! [Illseed note: My name is Wes and I aint in this mess. God bless Wendy though.]
Styles P still has hot fire coming from his mouth..... Oh Yea Freeway too :-)
Check out this freestyle Styles P, Uncle Murda, Beanie Siegel and Freeway did on Green Latern's Invasion radio a ways back:
Alicia Keys is Gangster.... Somewhat
In a recent interview with Blender mag A.Keys gave her views of gangster rap. Not for nothing she hit a few good points but some stuff was just... Well read it for yourself:
The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter tells Blender magazine: Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. Gangsta rap didnt exist.
Keys, 27, said shes read several Black Panther autobiographies and wears a gold AK-47 pendant around her neck to symbolize strength, power and killing em dead, according to an interview in the magazines May issue, on newsstands Tuesday.
Another of her theories: That the bicoastal feud between slain rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. was fueled by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing.'
Everything makes sense to me except for the AK-47 around her neck couldn't she do all that with billboard sales alone! Just a thought![Illseed note: GANGSTA!]
